No modern tea offering is complete without Matcha, “the espresso of tea.” It is great for matcha lattes or matcha americanos. If matcha lattes are on the menu, our barista matcha is a great fit. If you’re looking for a matcha for Americanos, our Teahouse Matcha is a preferred option. We also purvey extremely precious matcha made by renowned artisan tea producers, if your space allows for ceremonial matcha.
Chai lattes are a staple component of many menus, and our six different concentrates make consistently delicious beverages that can also be used in culinary or mixology applications. We offer our Core Line, which consists of our Masala Chai, Turmeric Ginger Chai, and Chaga Chai. The core line is sweetened with organic cane sugar and is easy to use with a 1:1 chai to milk ratio, whether hot or iced. The Barista Line is formulated with maple syrup, which is a tasty low-glycemic offering and a premium ingredient.
